Shia LaBeouf quits
Shortly after his departure was made official, LaBeouf, 26, posted a video of his audition for Orphans as well as screen shot images of alleged email exchanges with director Daniel Sullivan, playwright Lyle Kessler and costars Alec Baldwin and Tom Sturridge. The exchanges seem to address some fight that occurred behind the scenes between LaBeouf and Baldwin, 54, with Sullivan saying, "You two are incompatible."
The main exchange centers around a letter LaBeouf sent to his coworkers with the subject, "Apology." Below is the text of the intense, freewheeling emails LaBeouf shared on Twitter.
Shia LaBeouf's Apology Letter
"My dad was a drug dealer. He was a s--t human. But he was a man. He taught me how to be a man. What I know of men, Alec is. A man is good at his job. Not his work, not his avocation, not his hobby. Not his career. His job. A man can look you up and down and figure some things out. Before you say a word, he makes you. From your suitcase, from your watch, from your posture. A man infers. A man owns up. That's why [former MLB player] Mark McGwire is not a man. A man grasps his mistakes. He lays claim to who he is, and what he was, whether he likes them or not. Some mistakes, though, he lets pass if no one notices. Like dropping the steak in the dirt."
"He does not rely on rationalizations or explanations. He doesn't winnow, winnow, winnow until truths can be humbly categorized, or intellectualized, until behavior can be written off with an explanation. A man knows his tools and how to use them –- just the ones he needs. Knows which saw is for what, how to find the stud. A man does not know everything. He doesn't try. He likes what other men know. A man can tell you he was wrong. That he did wrong. That he planned to. He can tell you when he is lost. He can apologize, even if sometimes it's just to put an end to the bickering. Alec, I'm sorry for my part of a disagreeable situation."
